Manas Saha, Feb 5, 2019 : Description of the feature: When this mode is turned on, users will be able to receive/reject calls, Messages and App notifications without touching the phone (automatically or by using facial gestures). Who are the users? Everybody. There are many daily life cases when due to other works we are doing, we can not touch the phone. (For example while cooking, washing dishes, driving a car/bike, eating with hands, nursing babies...etc) When a call/message comes in these situations, users will be able to respond to it completely hands free. What is the proposed function? 1. Add a Quick settings toggle - "Busy hands". 2. When this mode is turned on, users will be able to respond to calls/notifications. 3. Turning off this toggle switched phone back to normal mode. 4. This is how Busy Hands mode functions for Calls, Messages and App notifications. Calls ---------- This mode can automatically receive a call (after a certain time, or by face detection) and put the call in loud speaker so that user do not need to touch the phone. Facial gestures settings specified in the below mock ups. Messages --------------- This mode can automatically reply a Preset reply template, or display the message on screen or read aloud. - both automatically and by face detection. More details in Mock ups. App notifications ----------------------- User can choose which apps are allowed to show notifications during Busy hands mode. When received notification from the allowed apps, this mode can display the notification on screen or read aloud. - both automatically and by face detection. More details in Mock ups. What is the user value? It will make user's life easy as users do not need to interrupt what they were doing. It will add great value in usability of the device and OxygenOS in general. If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior? Currently some apps automatically receives calls, but none uses facial gestures which I am proposing here. this will give more control to users. Explain the logic behind this product and how you want it to be implemented Step 1 : Add a quick settings toggle for turning on/off the busy hands mode. Step 2 : Add new Busy Hands screen in Settings. User can also reach this screen by long pressing the quick toggle. Step 3: Call settings screen Step 4: Message Settings screen Step 5: Notification Settings screen Step 6: App chooser for Busy hands Notification. Step 7 - This is how a message/notification will show up in screen if opted.
